Unique earth maps and other maps

I found these maps and I think the are fantastic.
All these and many, many more similar ones can be found at Worldmapper. Have a look around, they even have interactive versions of all these maps. If you have a closer look at some of them, it's quite interesting what you can find. Search without limit ;-)

All these maps show the world but the area of the individual countries has been weighted ad changed according to certain values. To start of with, this is kind of a normal map (for comparison) with the sizes correlated to the countries land area:

Weighted by total population. Where DO people live?

Weighted by net immigration. Where would people LIKE to live?

Weighted by mens income. How much do people earn in different places?

Weighted by alcohol consumption. Look, a map where germany is REALLY big!

Weighted by adult literacy. How many people can read?

Weighted by Child labour. If you live in africa or india, it's likely you have been working as a child.

Then again, you are not likely to read this (Weighted by the number of internet connections).

Weighted by toy exports. Are ALL toys produced in China nowadays??

And finally, the shocker: Weighted by HIV prevalence. No comment required.

More Maps:

The world according to Americans:

The world according to Texans:

Loosely related to this (it's also a map), I have also found the 'Map of humanity', which I found quite interesting. Please click for higher-resolution.
